By the time you get enough nose weight in the airplane to balance it most ESM Typhoons I am aware of are coming in at 17-18 pounds or more. Really doubt that a 1.20 of any sort would be adequate to...

I'm not sure exactly when they came out but the Royal/Marutaka kits were very popular in the late '70s, all through the '80s, and then slowly fading out in the '90s. It's been a long time but if...

Go ahead and send it Dale. Once I've got the machine and get it set up the drop tank might be a good learning project. There will most likely not be any need for the internal structure on a printed...

I've got a new 3d printer on the way that may be just the ticket for drop tanks. Not quite big enough to do them all in one go but I could probably do them in 3 pieces. They could be made to key...

Both Jerry Bates and Don Smith (Precision Cut Kits) have Hellcats of similar size, surely the canopy for one or the other could be made to work on the TF airplane. Just a thought, good luck.

They are air line connectors/couplers of some sort, though I do not recognize them. I assume those are the air lines for the retractable tail wheel unit. Robart Manufacturing, DreamWorks, and BVM...

Will look forward to your build and I am sure the RCGF 15 will be more than ample for the Hellcat. Be sure to keep us posted when you get started.

The airplane looks fantastic ledd4u. The US national insignia is rather more complicated than it looks and it's a lot easier to get wrong than it is to get right! Yours are not glaringly out of...

In service tri-colored Hellcats were painted with flat colors. It was not until the change to the overall dark blue scheme that the switch was made to a glossy finish.

I agree, at 1/3 scale there is no reason not to use the scale airfoils. Concentrate on building straight and true and keep it reasonably light and you will have a winner.

I have a hunch their are a large number of folks with similar stories Bob. While I had my own unpleasant CJM experience I was fortunate in that it did not result in any loss in the end.

The 9 o'clock switch panel did not seem to be present on all P-47's so I did not include it in my kit. Regarding the "one dial appendage" asked about I am not sure which item you are referring to,...

Not a P-51 at all but rather a Martin Baker MB-5, which is MUCH cooler than any Mustang. Most likely either built from Dan Parsons plans or from the Model Merchant kit which was based on Parsons'...

Agreed, and that is the one I chose to duplicate for my 1/6th scale P-47 cockpit kit. More common and more interesting to look at, win-win.

I believe the instrument panel on the left is from a late-war P-47N model Thunderbolt while the other is from an earlier (and more common) version.

My opinion only, 41-44 pounds for a 1/4 scale Spitfire is well within reason and will fly just fine assuming adequate power to pull it around. Again my opinion only, but a 30-35 pound 1/4 scale...
